Doncaster make their first visit to Carrow Road to face Norwich City for the first time in almost fifty years.
Norwich had an impressive win in midweek against high flying Wolverhampton Wanderers, on loan striker Leroy Lita scoring a hat trick.
So far at home this season the Canaries have played six games, winning two, drawing two and losing two.
Rovers were unlucky to come away from Reading in midweek empty handed losing 2-1.
So far this season they have won one and lost five.
Jon Otsemobor will definitely be missing as he`s still recovering from an ankle ligament injury.
Adam Drury and John Kennedy are near to full fitness and may be included.
Rovers are struggling defensively, James Chambers limped off on Tuesday night, Adam Lockwood missed the game with a bad back and Matt Mills was also struggling so missed out on Tuesday.
Lockwood and Mills replacements on Tuesday, Sam Hird and Jos van Nieuwstadt are also understood to be struggling with injuries!
The two clubs paths have only crossed on eight occasions in all competitions.
Rovers have yet to record a victory or draw at Norwich.
